Bird Walk For Beginners In Grass Valley

Sunday, October 21, 2018

8:00 -10:00 AM

Leader: Dan Stewart  530-265-4677 dcstew@outlook.com

Meet in the Briar Patch parking lot at 8:00AM. This walk is designed for beginners, but more skilled birders are helpful and welcome. We’ll talk about binoculars, how and where to find birds, what to look for when you find one. We meet at 8:00 AM in the parking lot of the Briar Patch Market on Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley. We walk for a little less than two miles and it usually takes about two hours. Fifteen to twenty different species are almost guaranteed, especially with enough sharp eyes and ears. It’s a nice walk up over the hill at Sierra College and back to the Briar Patch. Come on out and help us find and identify some birds.

Bird Walk for Beginners – Traylor Ranch, Penryn

Saturday, November 3, 2018

8:00-10:00 AM

Leader: Bill Covington  916-645-0727

Meet at 8:00 AM in the parking lot off Humphrey Rd. at the south- east corner of Traylor Ranch Nature Reserve and Bird Sanctuary in Penryn. Note: the address for the Reserve is 5050 English Colony Road in Penryn.  This trip is intended for beginners, but experienced birders are welcome and add to the experience for all. Traylor Ranch affords an opportunity to see the resident species of the lower foothills and valley floor, usually twenty or more different species. We’ll spend about two hours and walk a little more than a mile. Come on out, bring your binoculars and help us find some birds. The more eyes and ears, the more birds we’ll see.
